LONDON (Reuters) – Former Monte Carlo rally winner Paddy Hopkirk has been elected president of the British Racing Drivers’ Club that owns Silverstone circuit, the BRDC said. The 84-year-old Northern Irishman takes over from former Formula One racer Derek Warwick, who decided not to stand for re-election. The BRDC announced in July that it had activated a break clause in its contract to host the British Grand Prix, throwing the future of the country’s race into doubt after 2019.
